Proteinuria in Pre and Post Transplant
Patients with focal segmental glomerulosclerosis (FSGS) who progress rapidly to end stage renal disease (ESRD) are at highest risk for development of recurrence of proteinuria following kidney transplantation. This study will look at serum specimens pre and post transplant, as well as kidney transplant specimens pre and post reperfusion to identify where the defects has occured that results in recurrence of proteinuria in a given kidney transplant.
This study will retrospectively review patient's medical records for protein in the urine, blood creatinine and kidney biopsy results. Also character of the fluid used to flush the kidney before transplant will be analyzed.

The presence of proteins in the urine, an indicator of KIDNEY DISEASES.
A condition in which total serum protein level is below the normal range. Hypoproteinemia can be caused by protein malabsorption in the gastrointestinal tract, EDEMA, or PROTEINURIA.
Pathological processes of the KIDNEY without inflammatory or neoplastic components. Nephrosis may be a primary disorder or secondary complication of other diseases. It is characterized by the NEPHROTIC SYNDROME indicating the presence of PROTEINURIA and HYPOALBUMINEMIA with accompanying EDEMA.
Inflammation of the renal glomeruli (KIDNEY GLOMERULUS) that can be classified by the type of glomerular injuries including antibody deposition, complement activation, cellular proliferation, and glomerulosclerosis. These structural and functional abnormalities usually lead to HEMATURIA; PROTEINURIA; HYPERTENSION; and RENAL INSUFFICIENCY.
A kidney disease with no or minimal histological glomerular changes on light microscopy and with no immune deposits. It is characterized by lipid accumulation in the epithelial cells of KIDNEY TUBULES and in the URINE. Patients usually show NEPHROTIC SYNDROME indicating the presence of PROTEINURIA with accompanying EDEMA.

The number of people with kidney problems is increasing rapidly, related in part to the increasing prevalence of diabetes. Patients with kidney problems tend to have protein leaking into t...
This study aims to investigate whether statines (rosuva- and pravastatin) induce tubular proteinuria.
The purpose of this study is to assess the effects of high doses of candesartan cilexetil and also to assess which dose (16mg, 64mg, 128mg) is the most optimal for the maximum reduction of...
The study will look at the effect of 30 days of treatment of 15 diabetics with proteinuria with N-acetylcysteine ( Mucomyst ) at a dose of 1 gm twice a day by mouth. The primary outcome th...
Proteinuria was observed in 27% of 153 patients taking tenofovir for more than 1 year. Concomitant protease inhibitor therapy and cumulative tenofovir exposure were independently associated with prote...
Objectives. The cause of orthostatic proteinuria is not clear but may often relate to obstruction of the left renal vein in the fork between the aorta and the superior mesenteric artery (= renal nutcr...
While aging is accompanied by many age-related changes in renal physiology and function, proteinuria should not be considered to be a part of "normal aging". There are many age-prevalent illnesses tha...
Proteinuria is an independent risk factor for cardiovascular disease (CVD) in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD). Asymmetric dimethylarginine (ADMA) is a mediator of endothelial dysfunction an...
In systemic sclerosis (SSc), kidney damage is a major clinical problem which can lead to a deleterious outcome. Recently, in diabetes mellitus, early detection of proteinuria and treatment with angiot...
